Mother's Day Carnations

My thesis writing is finally reaching its end. After discussion with my supervisor, we'll send it out this month for examination after I've done my correction (on my third draft).

Okay, honestly I haven't been quilling at all since my last post although I still follow the updates in quilling world. Now that with my thesis settling soon, I manage to find some time and made these two Mother's Day cards, one for my mom, and the other for my mother in law. I started by sketching the flowers, followed by arranging the quilled shapes to fill up the space. The first card took longer to complete as it involved some adjustments and experimenting. The carnations designs are identical but if you look closely, the shapes and colours of the petals are a little different. Here goes the photos:

I thank my mom for encouraging me to go after my dream - to further my study when I myself was a little doubtful of my own ability. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to graduate this year and wear that bonnet to make her proud. To all mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day! You guys are awesome!   


  1. Completing a thesis is always such a relief - you took me back several years when I had my thesis hard bound and ready for submission. Your quilled flowers are exquisite as always. I loved the yellow inking you did for the background
